The action of medicine depends on whether the disease is acute or chronic. Acute diseases are of recent origin, e.g., cold, fever, headache that develop very quickly & if the correctly selected medicine is given to the patient, it produces very quick results. The chronic diseases are those which have a long history, e.g., Bronchitis, Asthma, Eczema, Arthritis etc. These occur as a result of continuous suppression by other systems of medicine or when the acute diseases have not been treated properly. These types of chronic diseases will definitely require some time to be cured. Thus it is the complexity, duration and suppression of the disease which makes it time consuming to cure rather than the mode of healing that is Homoeopathy.

Another very common misconception is that Allopathic or other medicines can not be taken with homoeopathic medicine. But if a person is on long continued allopathic treatment, especially steroids or “life-saving drugs”, discontinuing the medicine abruptly might cause sudden increase in the intensity of his symptoms. So the best way is to reduce the dosage of the allopathic medicine gradually as the improvement starts & then stop them under the supervision of the doctor.

Few physicians restrict the intake of onion, garlic, tea, coffee etc. along with homoeopathic medicine. But the researches have shown that there is no effect of such things on the efficacy of the medicine if these are taken in moderation & a significant gap is maintained between them & the medicine. Homoeopathic medicines act well on patients habituated to coffee and betel. Take the example of the southern states, where people primarily drink coffee, but Homoeopathy is most popular and is working very well in these states. But with certain medicines such restrictions are a must otherwise their action gets antidoted.

Homoeopathic medicines can be safely taken by Diabetics as they contain a negligible amount of SUGAR. Moreover the medicines can be given in water also.

Homoeopathic medicines are given on the basis of symptom similarity. The medicine which is given to cure a set of symptoms is capable of producing similar symptoms in a healthy human being. Primary action of the medicine may be observed by the patient as an aggravation of his disease but in true sense it is only homoeopathic aggravation which is a part of curative process.
If the indicated medicine is repeated more than required, it often increases the symptoms which subside on their own after withdrawal of the same. At times, if the patient has been on steroids or other allopathic drugs and he stops them abruptly there may be aggravation of the original disease.

It is said that one should not touch homoeopathic medicines with one’s hands. But as such there is no restriction. One can always take the medicine on hand provided they are clean.

It’s not that Homoeopathy is good for children only, it is just that children love to take homoeopathic medicines due to their sweet taste. It is good for children in the way that if we give homoeopathic treatment to our children from the very beginning it would give rise to a healthy generation because homoeopathic medicines not only remove the disease from its root but they also increase the resistance power of the body and they prevent the progression of disease or prevent the disease from becoming chronic. But homoeopathy is equally effective in adults too.

Generally for homoeopathic prescription, we don’t need to get the investigations done. But for diagnosis, prognosis and proper management of the case homoeopaths advise investigations.

Single medicine should be the first choice as per homoeopathic principles but the complex symptom picture presented by the patient makes it difficult to prescribe the similimum. Hence, combination medicines have become the practice of the day and they are equally safe.

It appears that all homoeopathic medicines are same because they are dispensed in globules. Actually in all preparations the vehicle remains the same but it is medicated by different homoeopathic dilutions.

Homoeopathy is a scientific system and is not something, which can be learnt from books. For graduating as a homoeopath one has to complete a 5½-year degree course in Homoeopathy including one year of internship. During the course the students are taught, subjects related to Homoeopathy as well as Anatomy, Physiology, Pathology, Jurisprudence, Surgery, Medicine, Gynaecology and Obstetrics. Practising Homoeopathy without a recognized degree is a punishable offence under the law. Many colleges in India also offer post graduation in Homoeopathy, M.D. (Hom), in various disciplines.

Myths In Homoeopathy

No, it is not advisable to stop the medicines abruptly. Initially your doctor will advise you to continue with these medications. However, once your condition becomes stable and your resistance power against the disease has become strong these medicines can be tapered off gradually, but that too under the supervision of your doctor only.

Yes, Homoeopathic medicines can be safely taken without any side effects or interactions with Allopathic, Ayurvedic treatment or any other therapy. As homoeopathic medicine does not interfere with other therapies, drugs, herbs, vitamins etc. it is safe to use in conjunction with other medications.

Homoeopathy is a holistic medicine and treats the person as a whole. Instead of just focusing on the disease it takes into consideration mental, emotional and physical factors and restores a balance between them. Instead of just working on the superficial disease it believes in treating the root cause of the disease. In addition to this homoeopathic medicines help to boost up the immunity (natural fighting force of our body) of the patient so that the patient acquires enough resistance to remain symptom free.

Homoeopathic medicines are natural, mild in action and hence completely safe. They do not cause any side effects and are non addictive. This makes them safe for all age groups – babies, children, young people, elderly.

This is just a myth. In fact, researches have shown that onion, garlic, tea, coffee or any other strong smelling substance do not have any effect on the efficacy of homeopathic medicine. Hence they can be taken safely with homoeopathic medicines.

Homoeopathic medicines are equally efficient on the patients who take tea or coffee. There is no restriction of any kind of strong smelling substance while on homoeopathic treatment.

There are two methods of taking the homoeopathic medicine orally (liquid form and sometimes globule form) and inhalation. The globule has to be taken directly on the tongue and allowed to dissolve. The liquid medicine is advised to be taken with little quantity of water.

The result of the medicine depends on whether the disease is acute or chronic. Treatment of acute diseases show result in very short time. The time consumed for treating chronic disease depends upon the severity, complexity, duration and suppression of the disease.

Treatment depends upon the type of disease whether it is acute or chronic. In case of acute disease the result of treatment is very quick e.g. fever, cold. But if the disease is chronic e.g. Eczema, asthma time taken is too long as these diseases are treated according to the severity, complexity, duration and suppression of the disease.

It is a myth that homeopathic medicines are slow to act. The action of medicine depends upon whether the disease is acute or chronic. In acute diseases (i.e. disease of shorter duration or recent origin) homoeopathy acts faster than any other mode of treatment and produces very quick results. However, most of the time the patients visiting the homoeopathic physician are suffering from chronic disease (disease of longer duration) who have been continually suppressed, over drugged or declared incurable by conventional systems of medicine. These cases take time to show response depending upon the severity, complexity and suppression of disease.

The diet for every disease is recommended according to the sensitiveness of the patient towards the exogenic factors. There are very few diet restrictions depending upon the individual’s sensitivity.

Homoeopathic medicine are very mild and given in minute doses, hence they are perfectly safe to take during pregnancy or lactation. In fact homoeopathic medicines boost up the immunity of the patient thereby allowing the patient to acquire resistance against diseases.

Self prescribing without your doctor’s consent is never safe. It can interfere with the course of treatment and can also spoil the case. So always consult your physician before taking any medicine.

Homoeopathic medicine can be safely taken by diabetics as they contain negligible amount of sugar which does not have any effect on the blood sugar levels. Moreover, homoeopathic medicine can be given in water also in liquid form.

The diet for every disease is recommended according to the sensitiveness of the patient towards the exogenic factors. A restriction for intake of onion, garlic, tea, and coffee is a myth. Diet restrictions for disease are very patient friendly.

Patient is free to go for package or take monthly treatment packages. All allergic condition are endogenic. To make these active genes inactive and develop immunity it takes a long time. Packages are economically helpful and also ensure patient compliance with the treatment. The cost of treatment paid monthly is much more as compared to one time package payment which includes special services such as free courier (within India), free diet recommendations, counselling.


Most of us think of health as “freedom from disease.” But good health – apart from the absence of disease encompasses a harmony between the essential functions of body, mind and soul. Nature has given us tremendous capacity to live in good health. But as we keep deviating from Nature’s laws (principles) and as we are constantly exposed to various allergens, the body’s defense mechanisms keep getting weaker day by day. This often predisposes our body to disease and it tends to acquire various physical or mental illnesses.

Exogenic allergy is caused by various external allergens like industrial wastes, chemicals, insecticides, pesticides etc. These allergens are actually just a tip of the iceberg. Our highly polluted environment compels us to inhale and ingest various chemicals that are potential allergens. Allergens, therefore appear to be unavoidable: We can’t really avoid dust, wheat or sun. Even human mother’s milk has been proven to contain various pesticides that are well recognised as allergens.
